Jenna & Reed | Grand Rapids, Michigan Wedding

They did it, Jenna and Reed are MARRIED! It may not have been Plan A, or Plan B, or even Plan C…but their wedding was beyond perfect in every way! The joy these two have is contagious and I could not be more honored to have been the one to capture the day they finally were able to become husband and wife! When Michigan’s COVID restrictions changed just two weeks before their wedding date, they had to find a completely new venue that could accommodate an outdoor wedding. These two handled all of these last minute changes with such grace, and in the end everything could not have been more perfect!

It’s days like these that have quickly made me fall in love with intimate wedding days. Jenna & Reed’s wedding was so special and full of the sweetest moments. Both Jenna’s groom and dad instantly burst into tears as soon as they turned around to see her during their first looks, definitely two of the sweetest first looks that I have ever captured. Their closest family and friends were overjoyed all day to celebrate these two, it is so clear that they are dearly loved by many!

After double dating with these two for the past few years (Reed and my husband used to work together!), it was so much for me to witness and be a part of their wedding day. These two really are the perfect match and their love and connection was SO evident as a bystander. They’re going to make a beautiful life together!

Congratulations to the new Mr. and Mrs. Hondzinski!
